Condensations of lactam acetals 2a,b with isocyanacetic esters give 3a,b. The Z-configuration of 3a (R1=CH3, R2=C2H5) was determined by X-ray diffraction. Reaction with ethyl N-(ethoxycarbonyl)glycinate gives the protected α,β-dehydroamino acid derivatives 4. The isocyano group can be converted to the carbamate group via the isocyanates 5. Catalytic hydrogenation of the double bond and deprotection of the functional groups give the amino acids 11a, b and 10.
